2024 Season

SoloFest 2024

March 1 - March 24

An All-Female Line-Up for Bridge Street Theatre’s 2024 SoloFest

March is Women’s History Month and, to celebrate, Catskill’s Bridge Street Theatre has programmed an amazing all-female line-up for the 2024 edition of its popular “SoloFest”. Beginning March 1st and continuing Fridays through Sundays for four successive weekends, the award-winning theatre will present “SoloFest 2024” – a mini-Festival of four original solo shows – on its “Priscilla” Mainstage with a new show featured each week. And you can bet it’s not only women who’ll find plenty to love in these eclectic, innovative, and diverse pieces.

“Our first SoloFest last March was such a phenomenal success, we would have been crazy not to bring it back again this year,” says John Sowle, Bridge Street Theatre’s Artistic and Managing Director. “These four women have incredible stories to tell and very different and entertaining ways of sharing them with audiences.”

Tickets for individual shows in “SoloFest 2024” are priced at $25, but you can purchase a Festival Pass for admission to all four plays for only $75 – that’s four shows for the price of three! And students ages 18 and under will be admitted for only $10 per show.  NOTE: There are no service fees for online purchases.
